Hydrodemolition is also known as hydro demolition, hydro blasting, and water jetting, is the ideal concrete demolition technique that uses high-pressure water (Water Jetting) to demolish or remove concrete structures.
Hydro demolition is also used to remove as asphalt and grout. The primary purpose for Hydro Demolition is surface restoration and structure protection. In cases where concrete structures have deteriorated or the internal reinforcing steel structures have begun to corrode, it is necessary to remove any unsound concrete and reinforcing bars (rebar) in order to replace it with new concrete and maintain the integrity of the structure.
Hydro Demolition is also used to remove any concrete structures, including sound concrete structures, where vibration is a concern. This is because Hydro Demolition can accurately remove concrete structures without compromising surrounding structures or causing microfractures to adjacent structures.
